Nonunion post-mandibular fractures are relatively uncommon. They pose severe challenge in terms of treatment and quality of life. The cause for pseudo-union is multi-dimensional. Removal of the cause or treating the same is an absolute need to provide correct treatment. Successful correction of a case of pseudo-union of fractured mandible occurring after two previous treatment attempts is presented. The possible explanation for the pseudo-union as well as the precautions to be taken to prevent such occurrence is discussed.
